I have loved as I have never been loved, and in loving as I have never been, I have held the hands of gods and laid weeping before the closed fists of disappointment dripping with my own blood and barely skimming forgiveness. Perhaps it will come to me, this love, a love, beneath your bed, [...]

I’m on Sudden Denouement today, have a read.
We crossed that bridge
the second you came upon it,
beach blankets soaked
and the lovers’ notes
carved a generation before us
had seemed entirely too heavy
until that night when I sat down
to undercooked chicken and overcooked rice
served with an unconditional side of love.
And I remember feeling sorry for the chicken
at that moment in all of my wise teenage years,
and having an epiphany right there
at the dinner table next to an alcoholic
control freak who called me stepdaughter
and walked upon me to seal it
like the gummy flap of an envelope
stuffed with unloved letters,
and a mother who wore exhaustion
hidden inside her navy pumps.
Death, no matter how it is served
will always precede dinner
unless breakfast beats it to lunch.

A Must Read David Lohrey has written an outstanding collection that sinks its hooks into you from the first page and doesn’t let go until long after you’ve finished reading.

oldepunk delivers a gut punch of the wickedest sort. This is an outstanding piece of writing.

How can I feel so much pain
yet feel nothing how many times have I been stung
yet never touched by the sting
If forever is a fever if never is never
what good is it to be this fucking clever
I know what I know and write it down to show
but no, I’m a low fellow
I cannot go
what use is useless, clueless
sometimes mostly stupid and tuneless
ostensibly deranged but you knew that
so how can I feel so fucking dead
was it something that was said?
because all I suffer is in my head
but it doesn’t hurt, it’s just the pain in the rain singing my name for another go at the game and it’s such a shame that I cannot feel anything
Because if i could, you would have just broken me…..

All I know is this is gorgeous. I stand with darkness and with Jasper. What a write! Would I give up my torment for a better life? Trade my constricted words for laughter at restaurants with jovial sorts with funny handshakes and antidotes about country life. I could chemic… Source: I Stand with Darkness! - [...]
